To add the detail to Norma's post from earlier, this looks to be the 1841 entry:

Alexander Walker 30 lab. b. Scotland
Hellen Walker 25 b. Scotland
George Walker 9 b. Scotland
William Walker 6
Rachiel Walker 4
Alexander Walker 2

Address: Park Lane

On the Walker side....not sure if you have access to subs part of A/try.com for members' family trees.

One here which shows Alexander Snr having died 1889 in Old Meldrum and Helen Gordon in 1878 in Aberdeen - http://trees.ancestry.co.uk/tree/6454807/person/256523438  This tree looks to be following daughter Rachel b. 1837.

This is given as a possible 1881 entry, but just for Alexander:

Alexander Walker 73 General Labourer (Pauper) b. Meldrum
Address: 13 James St, Old Meldrum

Something to work from. 1861 and 1871 census are obviously outstanding so far...

Maybe Alexander and Helen split up  :-\

1871 has:

Ellen Walker 58 Washerwoman b. Old Meldrum
Joseph Walker 27 Labourer (dock)
Margt Walker 23 Wool Mill Worker b. Aberdeen
Joseph A Walker 12 grandson b. Aberdeen
Address: 14 Chapel Lane, Aberdeen

Maybe this entry for Alexander in 1871?:

Alexander Walker 63 Labourer (road) b. Old Meldrum
Address: 13 Back Wynd, Old Meldrum

1861, so far can only possibly see Alexander Snr:

Alexander Walker 52 Ag Lab b. Meldrum
Address: Back Wynd, Meldrum

Original image of census from Scotlands People for all of the above would help in showing marital status for these entries, which the transcripts often don't depending on sources.

Saw that Alexander but dismissed him due to him being on his own.

Looks like they possibly did split. Only way to confirm would be yo find Ellen/Hellens death cert and see if it says wife of Alexander. Or vice versa.

Rachel is showing as having married an Alexander Russell in 1869 https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XTJN-VJ4  This might help with further details - parents, addresses and witnesses names.

I think this is their first (?) born son marrying in later years https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FHZX-18X

...But, we need to keep on your direct lines  ::)
